as the vice president met with the nra at the white house as part of his gun task force. >> a teacher at that high school is being called a hero to convince the 16-year-old shooter to put down the gun. it happened a couple of hours north of los angeles. a neighbor noticed the boy walking into the school and called 911. the boy shot one classmate, and missed another before the teacher talked him down. that teacher actually got hit in the head with one of the pellets. police arrested him. he apparently stole the shotgun from his brother and reportedly was suspended last year for making a hit list of targets. there is supposed to be an armed guard at the school, but he was late after getting stuck in the snow. >>> to the vice president's gun task force, later today he's meeting with video game executives. yesterday he met with the nra and that didn't go so well. the gun lobby blasted biden saying it will defend second amendment rights to own guns. biden confirmed he won't wait until the end of the month and wants background checks for every gun purchased without exception. >> universal b
it still works, and the notion that it just doesn't work -- this is one of the nra talking points. it's just fact rally false, and -- and again obviously, durbin's point that it's a deterrence to people to guy guns is also the obvious counter to that claim. but i come from a more rural part of connecticut, and obviously there are a lot of gun owners out here. background checks is just not a controversial item. >> stephanie: right, 92% of americans are for background checks, right? >> absolutely. and i have been meeting with police chiefs in my district lately, and they do the psi it will permit applications. and they have signing permits for people that they have no confidence that they really know their true nature. and that's the one item you hear over and over again. it extents not just to gun purchases but to gun permits, to have a stronger database of background checks. by the way it also fits totally within scalia's decision on the second amendment, so the notion that there is a second amendment problem, just read scalia's majority opinion. he explicitly stat

from the nra's leadership's defiant and unsympathetic response to the connectic connecticut massacre winning the common sense reforms will require a fight. and they're not letting congress off the hook on this either. giffords making comments it directly to her former colleagues pointing out it's been two years since she survived that deadly attack in tucson and now she said, congress in that time has done something extraordinary -- nothing at all. very strong words to start this campaign. we're going to wait now to see where they go from here. >> what's our sense of it? we don't have details yes about how this giffords campaign is going to work. what does it look like the strategy might be based on what you know so far? >> reporter: talking about creating a conversation about, quote, a gun violence prevention. most of all, they're also calling the fact that they want to be able to match the gun lobby not only in its influence but also its resources. when you go to the website, the new website they've created for americans for responsible solutions, it's very clear there they have a
of it is sort of organization that the nra has longstanding organization in washington versus emotion and what the gun control lobby is trying to do is keep people, remind people of situations like in tucson two years ago or aurora or newtown, and when you talk to people who have been working with the biden task force and who have been trying to rally new support here they say they have about 30 days after one of these massacres before public opinion starts to go back to other kinds of issues and so they're trying to grab that window to make something different this time. >> do they believe that there is something different, though because this was about those 20 young kids rather than a normal kinds of awful tragic shootings? >> that's exactly right, charlie. they think that something has changed here there's a boiling point and the strategy is to take the awful nature of this most recent mass shooting and to try to do two things one, break the nra's membership apart, to argue basically the nra membership is different than the leadership of the nra and also t
, the ceo of the nra outlined the essence of the hearing. >> gabby and i are pro gun ownership. we are also anti-gun violence. rights demand responsibility. this right does not extend to terrorists. it does not extend to criminals and it does not extend to the mentally ill. when dangerous people get guns, we are all vulnerable. >> a third of our schools right now have armed security already because it works. more gun laws while failing to enforce the thousands we already have is not a serious solution for reducing crime. proposals that only serve to burden the law-abiding will fail again in the future. >> only a couple of times did wane la pierre get into it with a member of the committee. over the hours, it was a reasonable back and forth. it was not the fireworks that some people might have expected. while he opposes the universal background checks, he came with an argument to make saying over and over again, there not prosecutions of laws that are on the books, trying to put the pressure back on the justice department and less on gun owners. a lot of emotion when other examples were give
congress is cowed by the nra? >> that is pretty clear, isn't it? you know, when you grappa -- when you grow upo -- you know, it is easy to say no to an opponent or to a constituency of the other party. it is tougher to say no to a friend. to a supporter. when you get these jobs, elected to the congress or the legislature or you get elected as mayor, a measure of your oath is when you can look a friend in the eye, someone that he mostly agree with and say, i do not agree with you and you are wrong on this issue. i think the nra is wrong when they say the answer to a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun. when they say that teachers ought to be carrying guns in elementary schools. when they say that virtually no gun legislation is acceptable to them prepared -- to them. that is, to me, and extreme position. i would hope there are republicans and democrats who can look them in the eye and say, i'm sorry, mostly agree with you, but you are wrong puritan -- but you are wrong. i still have a few months left. i would like to continue in public life. i have a thin majority whip, majority lead
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve
have locked in a safe at home. what we do want is what the majority of the nra members and other americans want, responsible changes in our law to require responsible gun ownership and reduce gun violence. here is a live look at some of the preliminaries in tucson, in just a few minutes at exactly 10:11am mountain time bells will ring out across the city marking the moment two years ago when a gunman opened fire outside a soup irmarket killing six people and wounding 12 including former congresswoman giffords. jenna: for some context when we are we talking about gun laws. federal gun control efforts go back to the 1930s. congress passed a national firearms act in 1934 during an era of rampant violence linked to prohibition. the law targets automatic fire weapons, imposes a tax on the making and selling of firearms, and requires registration of certain types of firearms. well decades later in 1968 following several high profile assassinations congress even acted the gun control act. that law prohibits all convicted felons, drug users, and the mentally ill from buying guns. it rais
